Russian forces in Kherson Oblast attacked a fire truck at the scene of an earlier attack with a bomb dropped from a drone, Ukraine’s State Emergency Service said on July 11.

The vehicle was involved in firefighting operations in the village of Bilozerka when it was hit.

“Rescue workers managed to reach a safe location. None of the rescue workers were injured,” said a Telegram post from the state disaster management service.

Russian forces regularly attack rescue workers, often with dual missile attacks.

Rescue workers have also been dropped from drones before. In May, a police car was hit during evacuation efforts near Vovchansk in Kharkiv Oblast, killing one police officer and injuring another.

Elsewhere in Kherson Oblast, Russian attacks have killed one person and injured two others in the past 24 hours, according to Governor Oleksandr Prokudin.

A critical infrastructure facility, a farm, houses, multi-story residential buildings and other property were damaged, he said.
